I don't know if you've read RockinRobin's goal post, but remembering what she wrote has done the trick for me the past few days when I've been presented with off-plan food. I just think about what she says about the trade we're making. If you can look at that chocolate and decide that eating a piece of it is important enough to you that you will have to either adjust your plan to accommodate it or concede that you may not have a calorie deficit for the day, do it. But enjoy it when you do, because I keep remembering that I'm trading in a little piece of my dream for that piece of chocolate. If eating the chocolate means that I keep my sanity, it's a good trade. But if it just means that I'm allowing myself to fall back into old habits of eating without any control, it's a horrible trade-off. So - is it worth it?
